Some patients may have a tooth that is damaged because of decay. Or a tooth may be cracked, severely stained, or misshapen. Often, these issues can be addressed by fitting the tooth with a dental crown.
What Is A Dental Crown?
A crown is like a little cap that goes over a tooth to help stabilize it and prevent further damage to it and the surrounding teeth. Most often, it’s made in a dental lab from an impression of your tooth. The procedure usually takes two appointments. Crowns often last up to 15 years if they are properly cared for with regular brushing, flossing, and dental exams.
